    Mac Development

    I'm looking to start porting software to multiple OS's. One of which is Mac. Where do I begin? I'm used to VC++ and WinAPI development and I would assume something similar should be available for Mac. Any pointers?

    Try the CodeWarrior C++ Compiler. I believe you can work in Windows and compile for Mac. Can't help you any more than that.

    Onurak, unless Davros was wrong that question has been answered. Unless, of course, you are using mac os in which case google doesn't sound like a bad place to start looking.

    Code Warrior appears to have a full mac version. No need to work in windows. I imagine that will make any debugging easier. very cool.

    Compiler

    I have domne some research, and i have not found a C/C++ compuler economic enough for me. Codewarrior looks greay, but it costs too much. Anyone heve any in mind or know where to look? I am searching google, but the returns are massive and are taking time to sift through.
    Till next time,

    Go here:
    http://www.omg.org/technology/docume...ec_catalog.htm

    Scroll down the page and download the free UML 1.4 specification (current 1.4). Model your applications and then port them. As far as a specific API or widget toolkit I recommend QT. I think that it is compatible with Mac, but also MS Windows and Linux and Unix, and Solaris. Probably Linux is a good base to work as a starting point if only for the reason that every library and compiler is free. It is the best research OS.

    Yes it is compatible with Mac OSx
